Real Housewives of Atlanta‘ star NeNe Leakes has been making news lately, with the release of her brand new book in which she reveals her stripper past, plus the weekly antics on her series with frenemies Kim and Sheree.

NeNe opened up on a plethora of hot topics today, including just who Sheree’s friend Tania is, and what she really thinks of the controversial Kim. Check out what she had to say during today’s Fancast live chat:

On Kim’s mysterious boyfriend “Big Papa”:
I can tell you that he’s not BIG. Kim is just out there but she will be alright.

On the status of her friendship with Kim:
Kim and I probably will never be friends again because of trust issues.

The truth about Sheree’s troublemaking friend Tania:
The problem with Sheree’s “friend” was, she had interviewed to be a housewife and didn’t get the job (Kandi did) and me and Lisa knew that so we thought she might try to get loud for the cameras to stand out and maybe change the producers’ mind. I wasn’t trying to give her a spot on the show! That’s why I didn’t say anything.

The “realness” of the show and the cameras:
The camera crews are really good at giving us space so if you are not feeling it, they will leave sometimes. My life has really changed in so many ways! I have security with me, I can’t go out alot alone. My husband is somewhat camera shy! My oldest son thinks it helps him with girls and my little one is the popular guy on the playground at school! He’s 10.

What happened to DeShawn:

I haven’t spoken to DeShawn in about 3 months or so but I really did like her! i think the producers thought she was boring.

Future plans:
I’m currently working on a shoe line for women with larger feet and for my gay guys who wear heels! (sizes 9 to 14). I would love a talk show or a radio show .
